Green Point, Gros Morne National Park…..

Green Point, Gros Morne National Park…..

..on this Thanksgiving weekend I thought it fitting to give thanks for our natural wonders. We visited Green Point last week and had visited it in 2014 with our grandchildren; and although we loved this place, we really did not fully understand its geological significance.

Green Point is approximately 12 km north of Rocky Harbour and is another of my favourite places. Apparently geologists come from all over the world to study the limestone and shale here which date to prehistoric time. The rocks, the driftwood, the beautiful sunsets make  Green Point a destination must.

It’s difficult to believe that one cliff face could hold so many textures and different rock outcroppings.

I had difficulty in adding a link so please google Green Point for the amazing story..

Green Point is also a beachcomber’s paradise.

The sunsets here are  definitely a reason to be thankful.

Prehistoric rocks, driftwood, the ocean and amazing vistas….what’s not to like.
